(Arctic Exploration) Lopez, Barry.
Arctic Dreams: Imagination and Desire in a Northern Landscape.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine, bright unclipped dust jacket. In this award-winning classic, Barry Lopez explores the ways the human imagination engages with a landscape at once barren and beautiful, perilous and alluring, austere yet teeming with vibrant life, and shot through with human history. The Arctic has for centuries been a destination for the most ambitious explorers—a place of dreams, fears, and awe-inspiring spectacle. Based on Lopez’s years spent traveling the Arctic regions in the company of Eskimo hunting parties and scientific expeditions alike, Arctic Dreams investigates the unique terrain of the human mind, thrown into relief against the vastness of the tundra and the frozen ocean. Eye-opening and profoundly moving, it is a magnificent appreciation of how wilderness challenges and inspires us.

(Art) Klee. Paul.
The Diaries of Paul Klee, 1898-1918. Edited, with an introduction by Felix Klee.
A A Very Good plus copy with a previous owner inscription in a Very Good dust jacket with edge wear, a small hole at the spine of the jacket and internal tape reinforcement. Paul Klee was endowed with a rich and many-sided personality that was continually spilling over into forms of expression other than his painting and that made him one of the most extraordinary phenomena of modern European art. These abilities have left their record in the four intimate Diaries in which he faithfully recorded the events of his inner and outer life from his nineteenth to his fortieth year. Here, together with recollections of his childhood in Bern, his relations with his family and such friends as Kandinsky, Marc, Macke, and many others, his observations on nature and people, his trips to Italy and Tunisia, and his military service, the reader will find Klee's crucial experience with literature and music, as well as many of his essential ideas about his own artistic technique and the creative process.

(Naval Gastronomy) Grossman, Anne C. & Lisa Grossman Thomas.
Lobscouse & Spotted Dog: Which is a Gastronomic Companion to the Aubrey/Maturin Novels. Foreword by Patrick O'Brian.
A Fine copy in a Fine clipped dust jacket. "Spotted Dog" is a kind of pudding and is also the favorite pudding of Jack Aubrey, the fictional creation of writer Patrick O'Brian. Aubrey's adventures as an officer of the British Navy--and those of his friend and ship's surgeon Stephen Maturin--during the tumultuous years of the Napoleonic Wars have been masterfully detailed in O'Brian's many novels; now Anne Chotzinoff Grossman and her daughter, Lisa Grossman, take readers on a culinary adventure through the kitchens and cuisine of the early 19th century. Since food figures prominently in O'Brian's novels, his fans will already be familiar with such names as Skillygalee, Drowned Baby, Soused Hog's Face, and Jam Roly-Poly, but they may wonder exactly what those dishes are. Lobscouse and Spotted Dog makes it all clear: Skillygalee, for example, is oatmeal gruel, while Drowned Baby is similar to Spotted Dog, only without the currants and eggs. And Spotted Dog is...? You'll find the recipe in the Grossmans' book, along with excerpts from the Aubrey/Maturin novels and many other authentic 19th-century dishes to test your sense of adventure, your culinary prowess, and possibly your waistline. Lobscouse and Spotted Dog is more than a cookbook--it's a window into the past, and a delightful gastronomic companion to the novels of Patrick O'Brian.

Alexie, Sherman.
First Indian on the Moon: Poems.
A Fine tight copy without dust jacket as issued. This is one of only 500 Hardcover copies issued. Working from a carefully developed understanding of his place in an oppressed culture, he focuses on the need to tear down obstacles before nature tears them down. Fire is therefore a central metaphor: a sister and brother-in-law killed, a burnt hand, cars aflame. Tongue in cheek, Alexie inserts images from popular songs and movies, and catalogues aspects of traditional reservation life that have been sacrificed in America's melting pot. Alexie renews the nearly forgotten sense of language equaling power. And the language in these sequential works is flawless, each section picking up from and expanding upon the previous one, poetry and prose working naturally together.

Sherwood Anderson's Memoirs: A Critical Edition. Newly Edited from the Original Manuscripts by Ray Lewis White.
A Fine copy in a Very Good plus dust jacket. with some light sunning to the spine and front panel. In 1942, one year after his death, Anderson's memoirs were published after having been drastically cut and in many cases rewritten by the editor, Paul Rosenfeld. So altered was Anderson's original intent and text, that Rosenfeld's edition of the memoirs is almost a different book from what Anderson created. Some twenty years later Ray White, a renowned Anderson scholar, retranscribed over 2000 pages of Anderson's original manuscripts shedding a fresh light on the life and work of the author of Winesburg, Ohio, one of the single most influential prose works in modern American literature. In these memoirs, Anderson retraces his place in the Chicago Renaissance of 1910--20 as well as his friendships with Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Carl Sandburg, Thomas Wolfe and other major writers of the twentieth century.

Anderson, Sherwood.
Winesburg, Ohio.
A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket. This short story cycle is considered one of the seminal high spots of modern American literature. It is structured around the life of protagonist George Willard, from the time he was a child to his growing independence and ultimate abandonment of Winesburg as a young man. It is set in the fictional town of Winesburg, Ohio which is based loosely on the author's childhood memories of Clyde, Ohio. The stories were "...conceived as complementary parts of a whole, centered in the background of a single community." The book consists of twenty-two stories, with the first story, "The Book of the Grotesque", serving as an introduction. Each of the stories shares a specific character's past and present struggle to overcome the loneliness and isolation that seems to permeate the town. Stylistically, because of its emphasis on the psychological insights of characters over plot, and plain-spoken prose, Winesburg, Ohio is known as one of the earliest works of Modernist literature. Winesburg, Ohio has served as a representative early example of the modern short story cycle in American letters. Comparisons between Winesburg, Ohio and Jean Toomer's Cane (1923), Ernest Hemingway's In Our Time (1925), William Faulkner's Go Down Moses (1942), and several of John Steinbeck's works, among others, demonstrate the pervasiveness of the formal innovations made in Anderson's book.
